Dive right in with Cochlear™ Nucleus® Aqua+

aqua1

The Cochlear™ Nucleus® Aqua+ is a re-usable sealable sleeve that, when used with the Aqua+ coil, keeps your sound processor dry during use in or around water (e.g. when swimming, surfing, or just having fun splashing around). It has a built-in ear hook and is worn behind the ear with your sound processor sealed inside.

You must use rechargeable batteries for your sound processor to work inside Aqua+. Zinc batteries will not work as they need air and there is no air inside Aqua+ when it’s sealed.

 

The Cochlear™ Nucleus® Aqua+ Coil (withvintegrated coil cable) is used in place of your usualvcoil and coil cable while your sound processor is insidevyour Aqua+. It has a special plug that creates a sealvwhen connected to your sound processor’s coil socket through the coil plug hole in Aqua+. As with your usual coil, a coil magnet screws into the Aqua+ coil and holds it against your implant.

 

The Cochlear™ Nucleus® Mic Lock-Stirrup is a retention option to hold Aqua+ more securely behind your ear. The stirrup connects to the base of Aqua+ and the Mic Lock tube (when cut to size) passes under the ear lobe and connects to the Aqua+ earhook.

 

The Cochlear™ Nucleus® Safety Line is a retention option to help prevent accidental loss of your Aqua+ by securing it to your clothing with a snap-lock clip.

 

Remotes and wireless accessories can be used with Aqua+ if they are suitable for use in or around water. Testing shows Aqua+ can be used for 2 hours and at depths of up to 3 metres. Testing shows Aqua+ can be re-used up to 50 times, but this may vary depending on your particular use of it.
